The ECT4Health Respiratory Failure Nursing Online Education Series is for those who care for patients with respiratory failure, asthma, COPD and dyspnoea who desire a better understanding or update on lung sounds, auscultation, respiratory assessment and ABG analysis.
This series focuses on refreshing nurses with fundamental physiology, of different systems, and how to perform specific focused assessments of patients with respiratory distress. All nurses need to stay sharp with their assessment skills. In this course Rob takes you to the cellular level to fully understand deterioration, normal and pathophysiology. You will really understand those lung sounds. You assessment of shortness of breath and respiratory parameters will be the envy of the ward.
Ask yourself, Can my skills be improved upon? Have you ever asked a desaturated patient to take a few deep breaths, just so the O2 sats probe reads a number you want to write down? Have you ever struggled to understand pre and afterload, and all the respiratory jargon?
The ECT4Health Respiratory Failure Nursing online education series is perfect for all levels of nurse/paramedic and has a solid 13.5 hours of CPD delivered in 9 x 1.5 hour video conference sessions using the platform ZOOM.
